What To Expect On Your First Visit
Your first visit to Dunedin Chiropractic & Acupuncture will include an initial exam to review your current and past health history; a neuromusculoskeletal examination, and a report of findings that will go over treatments to help. Diagnosis including progression of force, modalities, and rehabilitative exercise is determined using effective, evidence-based assessment and treatment strategies.

Treatment plans are developed to have you progressing through the course of treatment and reducing your risk for setbacks. To achieve this, factors including the nature severity/duration must be taken into consideration when developing a plan that will work best with what is going on in your body.
We offer the unique combination of Chiropractic & Acupuncture as combined or individual services. Our hope is that patients will leave better educated on how to keep physically active throughout the day, following an exercise program, and implementing good posture.
Dr. Shaw likes to start new patients with a two-week trial of care following the initial exam/treatment. During this period of time treatment is completed 2-3x/week to gauge the patient’s response to treatment and other interventional strategies including education, ergonomics, home exercise.
Following these initial two weeks, the patient is reassessed. Many patients have significant improvements after the first two weeks in which case we taper off treatment to 1x/week for two weeks before transitioning to maintenance care every 4 to 6 weeks.
Some patients do require treatment at the 2-3x/week frequency following re-exam. The important factor in these situations is that there is continued improvement in the patient’s symptoms and/or ability to manage symptoms.
One of our major goals at Dunedin Chiropractic & Acupuncture is to empower our patients through education and skilled self-care. This fosters an environment where patients are receiving more meaningful care, long-term results while preventing practitioner dependence.
If you are looking for a chiropractic care provider that will work collaboratively with you and will help you understand how to make lifestyle changes to keep you better moving and out of pain then you are at the right place!
You can expect quality care each visit. Patients are never put into a cookie-cutter treatment plan
